Re: Cat Sailing in 30 Knots

True or apparent? The sea state doesn't look like 30 knots true.

Concur. The percentage of white caps does seem rather low.

Re: Cat Sailing in 30 Knots

Instead of getting hung up on the details, isn't it much more fun to just enjoy the video this generous sailor has offered us? A couple of fellows having a great time out sailing.

I wish more people would share these moments.

Re: Cat Sailing in 30 Knots

Really great video. I was in the keys 3 weeks ago and coming back to Ft Myers We were running on average over 8 kts. We also hit speeds of 12plus . Great feeling and tons of fun .
Keep up the fun and enjoy your sailing .
In my marina only about 5% of boat owners use their boats and of that number most just day sail. Many incredible boats and such a waste--no use
